most votes you win the election. we all believe in referendum in california about raising taxes that if you get 15% plus one you're entitled to rule. but we believe at the same time there are certain rights that are not subject to majority control. nobody thinks we should have a vote about whether to enshave people. nobody thinks we should have a vote about whether to racially segregate schools. nobody thinks we should have a vote about whether people get to practice the religion they want. the question is how to maneuver between those two positions and people's attitudes about that changes and that's part of what the supreme court is for. the supreme court told us in 1954, we're not going to take a vote in mississippi about whether after can americans go to segregated schools. so the only thing that majorities can't do are those things that are specified in the text or are contrary to the original understanding of the onstitution. others think the supreme court should pay attention to social orals. host: what about the use of social science in their decision-making? here's the edito

election of ronald reagan gave volcker the opportunity to return to his long-term plan. as part of his economic program, reagan encouraged and supported monetary restraint. but in 1981, restraint began to take its toll. high interest rates caused a collapse in the building industry. the high cost of consumer loans put auto dealers out of business and auto workers out of jobs. still, volcker held to his long-term course. consolidating and extending the heartening progress on inflation will require a continuing restraint on monetary growth, and we intend to maintain the necessary degree of restraint. schoumacher: by 1982, the economy had fallen into the deepest recession since the great depression. even the reagan administration was urging the fed to relent. but volcker and the fed board, determined to bring inflation down, held tight. finally, in late 1982, the fed saw inflation drop substantially and eased the money supply. this last week, the federal reserve bank decided to lower its discount rate to 9.5%, the first time this key interest rate has gone below two digits since 1979
